Package: libpoppler68
Version: 0.57.0-2
Severity: important


While using a program not yet packaged in Debian (namely, pdfsizeopt), I was
comparing the files before and after optimization and noticed a bug with any
poppler-based viewers and programs that I tried (I first discovered the bug
with diffpdf).

The first and second files (which I will send after I get the bug number
assigned by the BTS) should show exactly the same output, but with atril,
diffpdf, tools from poppler-utils etc., I that I get is a blank output for
the second file.

I tested both files with mupdf, gv (via ghostscript) and firefox's PDF
viewer and they all show the expected output, while poppler doesn't.

If any extra information is desired, please let me know and I will try my
best to provide it.
